Turn your FOMO to JOMO

Are your social media feeds an endless stream of posts and pictures from folk apparently having the best time ever right now?

Does everyone else seem to be getting through tough times with ease and succeeding against all odds, leaving you feeling anxious and somehow lacking?

Then it’s time for another dose of SANITY ON SUNDAY from the Girls Around Town‘s wellbeing expert Rosalyn Palmer, who’ll be chatting with June  during the second hour of this week’s show…

She’ll be on the phone to the studio from just after 11am to explain why you need to turn that Fear Of Missing Out to Joy Of Missing Out and, even more importantly, how to do it! 

“We’re all programmed to think that by missing out we are flawed. It goes way back to our old cavemen thinking and need for connection, as the tribe only survived together. Hardwired to fear separation, we now fear missing out and fail to embrace the joy of being happy in our own company,” says Ros, who’ll be sharing her antidote which, appropriately, spells JOMO.

  • Just say no! It gives you choices and boundaries and stops you from burnout.
  • Own the moment.  If you’re having a bad day, then be easy on yourself and remind yourself that this too shall pass.
  • Make what is right for you a priority.
  • Only check social media, emails, voicemails and the news when you have to. Instead, do what you love.

To discover how to become the best version of you, filled with the joy of finding more by missing out, make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online between 10am and 12 noon.

Because if there’s one thing you don’t want to miss out on, it’s your favourite Sunday morning show!!

Welcome back Rachel!

Would you believe it’s been almost EIGHT MONTHS since you heard the dulcet tones of Rachel on air?

The last time she was in the studio was at the end of January, before lockdown, but the good news is she’s back again this weekend!

Although she can’t be in the studio this time, she’ll be at the end of the phone for a long-overdue catch up with June during the second hour of the show, talking about her own lockdown experience – working 24/7 by the sound of things! – and the well-earned break she enjoyed with her family just recently.

Quite appropriate really, as the first time she was on Girls Around Town in June 2017 she was describing an amazing trip they’d taken during the previous year…

Lasting seven months, on that one they visited Canada, the USA, South America, Australia, Thailand and India. The latest holiday included a return to their favourite French spot and a chance to discover Italy too – quite a bit shorter in duration and definitely a lot closer to home but every bit as enjoyable judging by the pictures and posts on her Facebook page while they were away.

Make sure you’re tuned in to 107.8FM or listening online from 11.20am on Sunday to find out how Rachel spent spring and summer and what’s on the cards for her in the weeks and months to come…

From fashion to funerals

It’s not unusual for guests on Girls Around Town to be talking about why and how they made the decision to change their careers.

But switching from fashion consultant to civil celebrant? That surely has to be a first and definitely one worth hearing more about…

Which is exactly what you’ll be doing when you tune in to this weekend’s show!

Based in Newark, just a stone’s throw away from the Radio Newark studios in fact, Mandy Moran will be on the phone to tell June – and you – what prompted her to take on such a role after many years working for two well-known clothing shops in town.

The new job’s not just about funerals though – as a celebrant, Mandy will be helping people to organise weddings and christenings too…

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online from 11.20am on Sunday for her story – she’s an artist as well, so no doubt she’ll be talking about her passion for pencil and ink drawings during their chat.

And don’t miss the rest of your favourite weekend show – as usual, there’ll be plenty of gossip and good music to enjoy between 10am and 12 noon!
